Getting back to the discussion on the Emacs manual in particular, I have to 
say that I hardly ever use the Emacs manual, and I've been using Emacs for 
years now.  In fact, I don't think I've read it a single time since getting 
my current computer several months ago.  So to me, an Emacs installation 
without the manual _is_ perfectly reasonable.

The inline documentation accessed by e.g. C-h f or C-h k is a different story; 
but since that's generated from the GPL source files (both .c and .el files), 
it's automatically covered by the GPL.
